Couple may have directed terrorist towards his target
A COUPLE fear they unknowingly gave the Finsbury Park terror suspect directions to his target when he asked them how to get to north London.
They spoke to Good Morning Britain to express their horror that they may have told Darren Osborne how to get to Finsbury Park, not knowing what he is suspected of planning, The Sun reports.
The couple, who remain anonymous, said he asked them for directions four miles away at the Blackwall Tunnel and said: "He was really, really stressed. He was moving too much with his hands, was sweating.
"When I heard this morning I was worrying, I was panicking saying 'oh my god what have we done', I'm blaming myself."
"At the end of the day we only done what anyone else would have done - just showed him directions."
The man arrested by police after a suspected terror attack saw Muslim pedestrians mown down near a mosque in Finsbury Park with a hire van - leaving bodies strewn across the pavement on Seven Sisters Road in North London.
The horror unfolded as worshippers were leaving Ramadan night prayers just after midnight on Monday.
The man in custody was yesterday identified as dad-of-four Darren Osborne from Cardiff, South Wales.
The 47-year-old is being quizzed on suspicion of attempted murder and terrorism offences while police have raided addresses in his home city.
The suspected terrorist was apprehended by bystanders with a brave Imam shielding him from angry crowds in a bid to "extinguish any flames of anger" until cops arrived.
One of those who held the van driver, who is believed to have acted alone, down as they waited for cops to arrive said he begged those around to "kill him".
As he was bundled into a police van the suspect appeared to wave and blow a kiss while looking out at the scene of devastation left in the North London street.
Images of the van showed it was rented from Pontyclun Van Hire in Pontyclun, near Cardiff.
Security minister Ben Wallace said the suspect was not known to security services.
